public void Reinitialize(
	bool uploadFirst


Type: System.Boolean
A Boolean value that specifies whether to upload all changes from the Subscriber before reapplying the snapshot to reinitialize the subscription. If true, the changes are uploaded before applying the snapshot. If false, the changes are not uploaded.

After calling the Reinitialize method, you must start synchronization to reinitialize the subscription. For more information, see How to: Reinitialize a Subscription (RMO Programming).

Set the uploadFirst parameter to false when working with an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 7.0; otherwise an exception is thrown.

The Reinitialize method can only be called by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Publisher or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the publication database.

Calling Reinitialize is equivalent to executing sp_reinitmergesubscription.

The Reinitialize method is available with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
